Bros, update your research, there more than 4000 registered QS in Nigeria, and to the op, the professional no be beans oooo, after graduation, most people are stuked in-between making money or pursuing the career, cos the career seldom pay non registered members, and to get registered, talking about 3-5 years after graduation..... Its a good profession anyway

It is very good career
Re: Is Quantity Surveying A Good Career In Nigeria by matrix4(m): 7:15am On Mar 03, 2017
My candid advice to you is to be serious with your studies. Ensure you get to know the technicalities of the profession (Measurement, Building Up Rates, Valuation, Final Account et al). Equally, commence your registration process with NIQS early enough at the completion of your schooling. The sky is your limit.... Cheers!

Everything is just unnecessarily frustrating in 9ja. Except politics.

It should be about imbibing competence & professionalism, to produce able people to drive economic growth. Not delaying people's progress through bureaucratic huddles. Whatever the discipline.

Considering how little of our land is properly surveyed, we need surveyors to do it. I know of QS graduates now in banking and other areas. Some not happy but need the money.

With determination & persistence, you can go very far with surveyor career.

Guy.There is a difference between certificate and Sabi ficate.
Professional jobs when practiced well would go a long way to sustain you even after retirement from a good payed job.The attitude in Nigeria is that we yearn for good paying jobs.The NCC,PENCOM,PEF,DPR,NNPC etc.

But what becomes of you after retirement with a huge sum of money (if at all saved) without being street wise? Na small boys go help you finish the money.

My dad retired back in 2007,then I had almost finished university.He got all his entitlement and other fringe benefits to his full advantage.Few years after that, the monies finished, due to bad investments.BUT he had been practicing his profession even before he enrolled in public service.

As i write, he has so many on going projects across Nigeria that I can recall, up and till the moment.He told me that the money he made, he cannot have gotten such legitimately in his civil service years.Consultancy pay is not as you may envisage, but it is steady and may increase depending on how good you are and your client database.

He is a certified and well polished Quantity Surveyor.

My advice; ensure u learn properly the basics in QS. If U're good and are well positioned and located, u'd be tired of receiving calls to do jobs for clients (except for this recession). Many are in need of our services out there. Been practicing for 5yrs+. Success to u as u depend on God!
